Notes

The cut, which occurs at about the 45 minute mark, is presumably the cassette master flip.

This tape is sourced from Bear's cassette master with the known lineage of MSC>C>D>CD. The original tape was a half step flat. Pitch correction to raise the tracks up a half step was performed via Cool Edit 2000. Final audio tracks were run through shntool, adjusted for correct sector boundaries, then shn'd and verified via MKW.

From Deadlists:
Black and White Ball (SF Symphony Benefit). DeadBase IX says
that Morning Dew; Alligator precedes Hard To Handle, but the talk before Hard To Handle sounds like the beginning of the set and the cut in The Eleven falls at the 45-minute cassette side flip, so DeadBase's information seems dubious.There is a brief cut 2:43 into The Eleven.

And that's why I love this version of Hard to Handle, no matter the quality of the recording or Pig's fuckups. Love it!

I'm not a fan of these Hard to Handles that have Garcia playing slide, and this Schoolgirl is pretty rough. Aside from that, this is a very good show. The recording does hiss and roar a bit, but all in all it's quite good.

A nice listen.
Peace, Bob

Subject: I've always liked this one.
I bought a bootleg CD of this show almost 10 years ago before I knew any better (or had a computer with the internet). The first couple songs are admittedly not that great. But the Dark Star is interesting. The real reason I like this one is The Eleven. For some reason this one is up there with my list of favorites, there's a few parts, mainly Jerry leads that make me smile. I'll only give this show 3 stars, cause it isn't pristine reel sourced or anything, and the main highight is just The Eleven.

Stanley Owslly the 3rd, aka the "Bear"!!!----To know this tape came from bear's private tape stash increses its value to me. With archive's 1000s of choices, its easy to pass over a "ho-hum" show like this one, BUT this is an honest show, played by humble musicians, not egotistical rock star gods. ---------- The Dead could have bought Bear a higher quality spool of recording tape, but it seems the band was playing to the folks dancing in room, and not us, at our computers, & tape decks, 35 years in the future.-------- this is not a tape I will listen to daily, but one that helps me under-stand an important era of the band's history.
